Breast Augmentation Revision Bottoming Out
This patient came in for a complimentary consultation with Dr. Chiaramonte because she believed her implants were sitting too low. During the consultation, Dr. Chiaramonte explained that her implants had “bottomed out”. Bottoming out is a term used for when an implant slips below the fold of the breast, causing it to have too much fullness in the bottom portion of the breast. The patient was also experiencing a hardening of the scar tissue around the implant, also known as a capsule.
Dr. Chiaramonte recommended the scar tissue in the capsules be removed so that they implants could move freely within the pocket. He also performed a procedure to correct the fold of her breast, allowing her implant to sit in the proper position and not migrate downwards.
After the procedure, the patient was much happier with the way her breasts sat and noted that they were much softer and more comfortable than before.
